cunning in knowledge, and understanding

stand in the king's palace, and fwhom they
might teach the learning and the tongue of
the Chaldeans.

5 And the king appointed them a daily
provision of the king's meat, and of fthe
wine which he drank : so nourishing them
three years, that at the end thereof they
might e stand before the king.

6 Now, among these were of the children
of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and
Azariah :

7 ''Unto whom the prince of the euquchs
gave names : 'for he gave unto Daniel the
name of Belteshazzar ; and to Hananiah, of
Shadrach ; and to Mishael, of Meshach ; and
to Azariah, of Abed-nego.

8 IT But Daniel purposed in his heart that
he wouldnot defile himself ''with the portion
of the king's meat, nor with the wine which
he drank : therefore, he requested of the
prince of the eunuchs that he might not de-
file himself.

9 Now 'God had brought Daniel into

unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who

head to the king.

prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel,

than all the children which did eat the por-

AND in the second year of the reign
of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar
dreamed dreams, * wherewith his spirit was
troubled, and ''his sleep brake from him. .

2 "Then the king commanded to call the
magicians, and the astrologers, and the sor-
cerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the -
king his dreams. So they came and stood
before the king.

3 And the king said unto them, I have
dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled
to know the dream.

4 Then spake the Chaldeans to the king
in Syriac, ^ O king, live for ever : tell thy
servants the dream, and we will shew the

5 The king answered and said to the
Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me : ^if

7 They answered again and said. Let the
king tell his servants the dream, and we will
shew the interpretation of it.

8 The king answered and said, I know of
certainty that ye would t gain the time, be-
cause ye see the thing is gone from me.

9 But, if ye will not make known unto me
the dream, e there is hut one decree for you :
for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words

therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know

10 IF The Chaldeans answered before the
king, and said, There is not a man upon the
earth that can shew the king's matter : there-
fore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that
asked such things at any magician, or astro-
loger, or Chaldean.

11 And it is a rare thing that the king
requireth, and there is none other that can
shew it before the king, ''except the gods,
whose dwelling is not with flesh.

12 For this cause the king was angry and
very furious, and commanded to destroy all
the wise men of J3abylon.

13 And the decree went- forth that the
wise men should be slain ; and they sought
Daniel and his fellows to be slain.

14 IF Then Daniel t answered with counsel
and wisdom to Arioch the {| f captain of the
king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the
wise men of Babylon :

15 He answered and said to Arioch the
king's captain. Why is the decree so hasty
from the king? Then Arioch made the thing
known to Daniel.

16 Then Daniel went in, and .desired of
the king that he would give him. time, and
that he would shew the king the interpre-


17 Then Daniel went to his house and
made the thing known to Ilananiah, Mishael,
and Azariah, his companions :

18 'That they would desire mercies fof

perish with the rest of the wise men of

19 IF Then was the secret revealed unto
Daniel ''in a night vision. Then Daniel
blessed the .God of heaven.

20 Daniel answered and said, 'Blessed be
the name of God for ever and ever: ""for

25 Then Arioch brought in Daniel before

Judah, that will make known unto the king
the interpretation.

26 The king answered and said to Daniel,
whose naine was Belteshazzar, Art thou able
to make known unto me the dream which I
have seen, and the interpretation thereof?

27 Daniel answered in the presence of the
king, and said, The secret which the king
hath • demanded cannot the wise men, the
astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers,
shew unto the king ;

28 "But, there is a God in heaven that
revealeth secrets, and tmaketh known to the
king Nebuchadnezzar '^what shall be in the
latter days. Thy dream, and the visions ol
thy head upon thy bed, are these ;

29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts
t came into thy mind upon thy bed, what
should come to pass hereafter: ^and he that
revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what
shall come to pass.

30 ^But as for me, this secret is not re-
vealed to me for any wisdom that I have more
than any living, || but for their sakes that
shall make known the interpretation to the

king, *and that thou


know the

thoughts of thy heart.

31 IF Thou, O king, t sawest, and behold
a great image. This great image, whose
brightness was excellent, stood before thee ;
and the form thereof was terrible,

32 ''This image's head was of fine gold,
his breast and his -arms of silver, his belly
and his || thighs of brass,

33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron
and part of clay.

34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut
out II •= without hands, which smote the image
upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and
brake them to pieces.

35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass,
the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces
together, and became '' lilce the chaff of the
summer threshing-floors ; and the wind car-
ried them away, that ^ no place was found for
them : and the stone that smote the image
''became a great mountain, sand filled the
whole earth.

36 IF This .is the dream; and we will tell the
interpretation thereof before the king.

37 '' Thou, O king, art a king of kings :
'for the God of heaven hath given thee a
kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

The interpretation of the dream.

38 "^And wheresoever the children of men
dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of
the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and
hath made thee rijer over them all. .'Thou
art this head of gold.

39 And after thee shall arise ■" another
kingdom "inferior to thee, and another third
kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over
all the earth.

40 And Pthe fourth kingdom shall be
strong as iron : forasmuch as iron breaketh
in pieces and subdueth all things : and as
iron that breaketh all" these, shall it break in
pieces and bruise.

41 And whereas thou sawest ithe feet and
toes, part jof potters' clay, and part of iron,
the kingdom shall be divided ; but there shall
be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch
as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

42 And as the toes of the feet were part
of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom
shall be partly strong, and partly |1 broken.

43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed
